Call to video artists : FlashFlood


Dates:
Sat Jul 28, 2007 00:00 - Tue Jun 26, 2007

The Museum for Polydimensional Research presents:

FlashFlood : International Video Art Festival
Tucson, Arizona, USA

In the Sonoran desert, the scorching heat of the summer is interrupted by the monsoons, a torrential downpour of rain which fills the dry stream-beds as well as city streets. A flash flood, gone as fast as it came.

At its most basic, the media of Video Art are light and time. A flash is a short burst of light. Flood is lighting that lasts longer, filling a space. The FlashFlood Video Art Festival, like the summer monsoon, fills the city and then disappears, leaving everything more alive. This Festival will bring the best work of international video artists together for one long evening of viewing. Along with the principal festival events will be a special showcase of "video-objects", works which, through repetition or other means, may be appreciated by a viewer entering at any point and staying for any duration. These works will be projected in public spaces, bringing video art to pedestrians and drivers as they pass by.

deadline: July 26
